How 'bout Beethoven's 7th, the Allegretto?

It was used in The Black Cat (1934, Karloff & Lugosi) and Zardoz.

I don't know the name, but I love this Mozart piece with horns, that sounds like riding across open green fields... superb, miles above other Mozart I've heard (except for that lovely duet from Shawshank Redemption)

Another interesting Beethoven piece, is a brief piece on strings, which seems to be where the Rolling Stones copped "Paint It Black".

What's it called?

Wagner - Ride of the Valkyries (sinister, eh wot?)

Tchaicovsky - 1812 Overture (slam-bang ending. I can feel the chill aand smell the gunpowder).

Hall of the Mountain King, and the theme used by whistling Peter Lorre in M.

good call on the 7th - not one of his more widely known or played pieces. i, like you, truly love it though.

And we cannot forget one of the most beautifuly classical pieces of all time - Bach's Air on the G-String (the butt of many jokes - but one of the most melodic and beautiful pieces of all time)

gnite all - 'til tomorrow :)

i am now in a classical mood - great post deadmax!!!!!
